Our campsite had been chosen to perfection, getting the shade both morning and afternoon. We had brekkie then pumped up the kayak and paddled around the lake looking at birds for a while.
Re-arranged the new drawer system in the back of Mitzy, now incredibly efficient (!); rested for a while until it cooled down in the afternoon when we took the kayak out again. Saw more birds this time – lots of cormorants, a few pelicans, black swans, geese, ducks, egrets, spoonbills, terns, hawks, and others we couldn’t identify. Also heaps of turtles popped their heads up to look at us, and some fish jumped. I’d guess the fishing would be lousy due to the numerous dead trees in the water causing snags everywhere.
Only one other car drove in while we were here – a couple of guys in high-vis shirts and mining company numbers on the vehicle .. coming to make sure we weren’t greenies reporting on them I guess (wink).
Had a campfire tonight. To see our photos from Lake Nuga Nuga click here.
